Watch the Gaslight Anthem Play ‘Rollin and Tumblin’ at Reading Fest


The Gaslight AnthemThe Gaslight Anthem recently brought their rollicking live show to the annual Reading Festival in Reading, England.

The New Jersey rockers got to man the Main Stage, unleashing a set that included hits from their entire catalog, one of which was “Rollin’ and Tumblin’” from 2014′s Get Hurt.

During that song, guitarist Ian Perkins was hard to miss with his bright Gretsch G6139T-CBDC Falcon Center-Block Double Cutaway, which added another rhythmic layer to the three-guitar attack.

Watch the Gaslight Anthem perform “Rollin’ and Tumblin’” from Reading Fest below.

Guitar-Bass.Net Reviews the Gretsch G9555 New Yorker Archtop with Pickup

Posted: has posted a review of the Gretsch G9555 New Yorker Archtop with Pickup, awarding it a 9 out of 10!

After a breakdown of its features, the reviewer offers an extensive download on its tonal qualities.

“Plugged into a small tweed combo, we’re again reminded how liberating a single-pickup guitar can be,” noted “Naturally, given the pickup position at the end of the fretboard, there’s no shortage of bass – the low end is huge and sonorous, and suited particularly to open D tuning – but thankfully that doesn’t mean the high end is woolly; in fact, it’s as sweet or as biting as your right hand dictates.

“There’s a wide frequency separation between thumb and fingers when fingerpicking, and the New Yorker would make an excellent choice for solo live performers. The rosewood bridge lends character to the sound; dig in with a pick down at the bridge, into lots of spring reverb, and you’ll be rewarded with a woody lead voice that’s ideal for early 1960s Brit R&B.

“Despite its primitive appearance, the New Yorker does more than retro sounds; it would be equally at home in the context of latter-day Radiohead. Hollowbody construction means volume and gain bring feedback, but working with the limitations produces inspiring results – try using a looper to lay down clean chords, then play overdriven single-note lines on top, using swelling feedback for an Ebow-like effect.”

Carly Rae Jepsen Performs on Fallon


By Hilary Brown

Carly Rae Jepsen recently stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and treated fans to “Run Away With Me,” the opening track off the pop star’s newly released, critically acclaimed sophomore album, Emotion.

The shamelessly addictive song and appearance, which aired last Wednesday, featured a Gretsch cameo as well—an equally tantalizing black G5655T-CB Electromatic® Center-Block guitar played by Tavish Crowe.
